This morning we visited Monastir, which is just south of Sousse. The town has a fine ribat (fort) built by the Muslims to defend against the potential Christian invaders in the 10th century. It has been extensively restored & was used in "The Life of Brian" as a set. The major attraction apart from beaches is the Bourguiba mausoleum that he had built for himself during his long presidency. It houses the tombs of his family also & is ...

The next day we went on a caravan trip on dromedaries, because there are no camels in nothern afrika. Camels only live in Asia. we learned something new as well. :-)
The week went by way too fast, but it was really nice and I learned my first word in arabic:
"shokran" which means thank you.

I loved the medina, the streets a confusion, But Dani christened it a 'Ghetto' - a very sad delusion. The one time she ventured off the beaten track, I befriended a ...
... Kasbah \(fort) and the Ribat (fortified mosque). It is like stepping back in time and getting a feel of what city life must have been like in the middle ages. Oh, yes …. shouldn’t forget ….. Lynn met the Mayor of the city and his staff ….. during
our ‘travels’ ….. and had ‘extensive’ discussions ...
... is dead (sure he is), nice hotel i don't like the prostitutes much the guy looks like an idiot & the girl is a slag, not a hot slag, just a slag. anyway thats pretty much it erm.....

Historical Traveler Reviews lti Thalassa Sousse
Siamo stati in quest'hotel nel gennaio 2007. È grande e ha un bel design. Il cibo era buono, anche se la colazione non era particolarmente entusiasmante. Quasi tutti gli ospiti erano inglesi, direi circa il 90%. L'hotel era pulitissimo e le strutture in generale molto buone. Per svagarsi bisognava affidarsi interamente all'hotel, perché nei dintorni non c'era niente, tranne altri hotel simili a questo. Gli intrattenimenti consistevano più che altro in spettacoli amatoriali organizzati dagli animatori: c'erano musica, travestimenti e mimo. La prima sera abbiamo trovato divertenti le loro gaffe, ma dopo qualche giorno era diventata una cosa abbastanza noiosa. Una sera abbiamo anche giocato al bingo. In ogni caso, il gruppo d'animazione lavorava sodo, erano tutti gentili, ma non invadenti, e cercavano sempre di coinvolgere gli ospiti. Il problema principale era la posizione dell'hotel, si trova in un posto molto isolato, l'ideale per chi preferisce trascorrere le proprie vacanze in un hotel di qualità, senza avventurarsi fuori. Comunque, è possibile muoversi in treno, la stazione ferroviaria è a 10 minuti di distanza; per arrivare a Sousse ci vogliono 20 minuti e il biglietto costa circa 1 euro. C'è un treno ogni 40 minuti fino alle 21.30. Ci sono anche tantissimi taxi, il costo è di circa 7 euro e 50 (solo andata). La Tunisia non è il posto adatto a chi ha il cuore tenero, la gente è molto cordiale, ma tutti cercano costantemente di venderti qualcosa. Inoltre, tendono sempre a fare la corte alle donne, mia moglie e mia figlia hanno apprezzato quest'aspetto, mentre io li trovavo un po' esagerati. Forse mi sarei divertito di più se ci fossero state delle belle donne che mi abbracciavano e mi dicevano che ero bello! Infine, sappiate che qui non troverete un'atmosfera frizzante del genere "happy hour". Gli alcolici sono costosi (oltre 4 euro a bicchiere). Se volete conoscere una cultura completamente diversa, partecipare a conversazioni vacue, comprare borse poco costose e alloggiare in un hotel molto bello e lontano da tutto, allora venite pure qui.
we stayed at this hotel after transferring from our originally booked
Nos alojamos en este hotel después de trasladarnos desde el que habíamos reservado al principio, y fue como ir de Guatemala a Guatepeor. El hotel en sí está limpio y el servicio de limpieza no está mal, pero esas son las cosas buenas. El hotel no está pensado para huéspedes ingleses. Todas las demás nacionalidades siempre tienen prioridad, es como si al personal no le gustaran los ingleses.
Loved the Thalassa, Sousse
We arrived at the hotel after a long day of travelling, checking into our first hotel, being told the swimming pool was not in action and being moved on another long coach journey to another hotel but what a hotel. Made very welcome on arrival, the Al a Carte restaurant had been opened and a meal was provided for us, nothing was too much trouble. The location of the hotel was good, situated between Sousse and Port El Kantaoui, 3 km/5 Dinars in either direction. The rooms were nice, clean and quite contemporary, facilities were very good for families. Majority of guests were French & German and the food was aimed more toward their palette, but there was plenty of food and it was edible.
Overall a very nice holiday and we would return.
Parfait ambiance exellente
hotel exellent,ambiance chaleureuse, rien a dire pour les buffets varies,le personnel toujours a vous rendre un petit service de plus pour le mois de fevier le soleil; etait au RDV A RECOMMENDER
We travelled in January 2007. The hotel is vast and well designed. The food was good although the breakfast was not particularly inspiring. Most of the people stopping were English: I'd say in the region of 90%. The hotel was very clean and generally the amenities were good. Entertainment has to be mainly hotel based as there is nothing around the place except other large similar hotels. The style of entertainment was largely shows put on by the animation team and it was a mixture of amateurish shows with people dressing up and miming to music. For the first night this was mildly entertaining mainly for watching the gaffs, but it did tend to wane after the 4th or 5th night. They even played a game of bingo one night. However the entertainment team worked really hard and encouraged people to have fun and were friendly and not intrusive.
My partner, another couple and myself (all in our 30's) have just spent a fortnight in October 2006 at the Thalassa Sousse.
je devais séjourner du 7/6 au 17/06 2006 au thalassa village de sousse en tunisie avec le tour opérateur NECKERMANN, oh surprise à l'arrivée l'hôtel était en chantier et fermé.
J'estime que l'agence qui se dit irresponsable, aurait du être prévenue afin de pouvoir choisir ou reporter notre séjour.
